Varders the "it" fan these days??? No more GT fans as the top dog??? Man, things change quickly...maybe I'm just getting too old redface.gif



Anyone have led's in a plug to illuminate their reservoirs? Mine look a little too dim or the res might be too large (210x60). I tried them on the 12v (by mistake) and it looks the same as the stock 5v. I was hoping for a nice illumination but it shines about an 1" from the plug. Maybe its the BP glazed plug....might have to polish it frown.gif

How the heck do you get that back plate for the GPU or how can that be done? Got my artiste side a going. biggrin.gif
I think it's printed sticker.

Yep stickers. Only thing stopping me from doing something awesome like that is the inability to draw haha

I think Vardar's have good specs and SP that's the reason for the popularity. Since GT's disappeared for awhile and got really pricey, people jumped ship. I really like my Vardar's!

As for the plug, mine sucked too but was also frosted like yours, so maybe a polish would help. I think they are built for smaller res' honestly.

Vardars just make more sense now that Scythe's no longer selling the GT's. Especially here in Europe the price difference is quite large. (€15-19 for the vardar 120ER and €24-29 for the GT AP-15)

Totally agree. Also, the Vardar's look really good IMHO. thumb.gif

Vardar fans are pretty sweet. But I think my plan is NF-F12 IPPC. I like the looks of the fan better for one.

I nice breakpoint between price and performance are the Corsair SP120's as well... They don't perform as well as the vardars, but they can be had for considerably less. I purchased Corsair SP120 quiet edition PWM twin packs for $28 shipped, compared to vardars @ $18/ea + shipping from PPCS or EKWB directly.

After it's all said and done, that saved me about $45 on my 8 fans I ordered. It all depends if those couple degrees on load temperatures make or break what you're trying to do. smile.gif

Great point! I liked the black and gray because it matched my build and also got mine from someone for a great deal, practically brand new! Think I paid like $10-12 each shipped and they were like a month old or something close to that.

Don't mention corsair, or the hate-squad will be pulling out their pitch forks and lighting their torches (looks at 66x corsair fins in case) tongue.gif

Never was a fan of the look of the Varders, and the GT tbh. I would love some Eloops but you can only use them in push. Well, i can see why there's so much luv from one to another:



edit:

How much are the Darkside one's going for in EU?

Yeah, i was suspecting it was the frosting/glazing. Man, ever since ek did the csq frosted, things are all over the place. I have some white compound and Ill give that a test to see how it can clear up the glaze/frost.
